Bridge St Garage is a new addition to the Sydney CBD bar restaurant scene. A few weeks ago, Chocolatesuze and I checked out this place to scope what's on offer. This joint serves funky cocktails and American dude food with a Latin twist. The place is decorated with vintage industrial items and fit outs with a bar and diner feel.
I opted for the cocktail with the most rockin' name. It's called the Money Maker ($16). It consists of Buffalo trace bourbon, lash of Grand Marnier, fresh lime and then topped with apple juice. This refreshing fluid is so good it will "make a lot of money" this summer!
The Provoleta ($14) is Argentinian-style grilled provolone served with a chimichurri sauce and toasted herbed sourdough. Provolone is a semi-hard cheese with a smooth skin. The cheese has a sharp taste and is slightly sweet. Based on the entire taste of this dish, it's like deconstructed pizza.
Their deep-fried southern crispy chicken ($22) is a thick spice-coated chicken and deep-fried until it reaches golden crisp goodness. This style of batter coating has a crisp outer layer with a doughy texture inside. The coating has familiar Southern-style spices. It was hot and spicy just the way I like it! The meat was perfectly cooked and retained its natural juices. It was served with a coleslaw salad and Garage sauce.
The sticky pork ribs ($36) were my favourite! It was drenched in barbecue sauce and slow-roasted for 4 1⁄2 hours and finished by being grilled over hot charcoals. The meat was tender and smothered with sticky sweet tangy barbecue sauce. It was served with a side salad.
